I recently visited the Bigfoot Museum in North Georgia. It was awesome. I have wanted to go for a long time, and finally made it a priority. It did not disappoint.

I’m going to make this brief because I did a vlog and published it on YouTube. If you haven’t done so, please go to my channel, Sam Burton. look for Bigfoot.

If you are in or find yourself near Ellijay Georgia, the site in between Ellijay and Blue Ridge. on the West Side of the road. The self directed tour is only $8 currently. There are also tours that will take you out into the woods to look for Sasquatch. It was rainy with howling winds so I just took the $8 tour. I could have spent two days there. There is so much to see and read. My poor brain was on overload.

I went at the end of October and the place was not busy at all, but the girl at the desk said that during tourist season sometimes there are thousands of people there. To be honest, the place has so small a footprint that something like that would have taken away some of the pleasure for me. I don’t do lines and crowds very well.

There are tons of stories. Some are on video. Some are set up as sets, with headphones to listen to. And some are reprints of newspaper articles. A real investigator could do a ton of research there.

There are quite a few plaster casts of footprints and artists reconstructions of descriptions of the creature as described by the witness. In addition, there are a whole ton of photos of famous researchers and celebrities who have stopped by. And there is a small, well stocked gift shop. I got some shirts and books.

I’ve always wanted to go because I believe in the Bigfoot. But I don’t believe he is either a man or an ape. I believe some sightings are misidentified. I believe some are hoaxes, but I believe many are genuine. I love the word paranormal. It’s perfect to use of Cryptids. I call them Demonic Practical Jokes. You’ll have to watch the video to understand why.

Here’s my plea. Please watch the video. Subscribe to the channel, and like the video. And…tell your friends. Thanks. Next week we’ll be back talking about the challenges of Keto when you’re full time on the road.

Podcast is up!

Yes!  The podcast is up and active. The first episode, to be honest, sounds like a first episode, but we’re going. I’m so excited. This is so different than anything I’ve ever done.  If you’re not interested in the Paranormal, or Supernatural, just give it a miss, but tell your friends who are.

I hope you enjoy this. I will probably put it on YouTube in a couple days. If so, I’ll let you know. Just go to YT and like the post. Even if you listen on the anchor site or at Spotify. It probably won’t be active on Spotify until Friday, or Saturday.



Podcast Launch Coming Soon!

Events With Benefits® Podcast | Travel headphones, Smartphone, Motivational  giftsI am getting excited. My new podcast is inching closer to launch. I still don’t have an exact date, but maybe by the end of the week. I’m going into the studio today to record the first episode. After that it will all be about editing and getting it published. I’m just not sure how long that will take me. I’m a bit out of practice.

I’m calling the program, Mysteries, Magic, and the Supernatural, or MM&S. My plan is to look at popular weird topics, like, UFO and Crytpid sightings, Poltergeist activity, and other Paranormal events, and to look at them from a Biblical perspective. What? Yes, I believe they are real. And I believe the Bible has a lot to say about weird stuff like that. I’m going to use some of my own paranormal experiences to get the ball rolling.

I’m also going to show you some of the weird stuff that’s in the Bible. Christians have kind of hidden from these topics for way too long, or tried to ‘Spiritualize’ them in some way. But I believe if we look at this stuff honestly, it will all make sense.

Frankly, I’m taking a huge risk with this project. Many Christians will automatically think I’ve become a heretic, and will not hear me out. Many Unbelievers in either the Bible or the Supernatural will think I’m a religious nut, and not listen. But this subject matter  was the basis for my doctorate, and I’m quite passionate about it.  It will take several episodes for the pieces to begin to fit together, so I wonder whether listeners will stay with me long enough to make sense. I don’t know. But life is all about risks. If we live our lives in bubble wrap, we’ll never experience anything.

I can promise you this. Every story I tell, will be true. Whether it happened to me, or to someone else. Every Bible story I tell, will be accurate. The world we live in is mysterious, magical, and supernatural. And God is trying to tell  you something by it all.

I will use this site  as a place to announce new episodes. I’m going to use my personal Facebook Page for discussions. As the program grows, I’ll likely make a new FB page dedicated to it. I’m thinking very seriously about putting the episodes on YouTube. I’ve cleared out everything I had on one of my channels for this. I just don’t know whether it’s a good place to put podcasts anymore. YT is going crazy with adverts. It has become really annoying. Ads are one of the reasons I hate television. So I’m still trying to decide on that one. Do me a favor, email me and let me know whether or not you’d listen to a podcast on YouTube. I will be making it available pretty much everywhere else, including Stitcher, and I hope, Spotify.

Spoiler Alert:  In the first episode, I will tell the story of my UFO encounter. In the next few episodes I will talk about personal interactions with demons, and shadow people. I will also talk about the Loch Ness Monster in the first 5 episodes. After all, I live less than 60 miles east of the Loch. So, if you have any stories or question related to those subjects, email me or write them in the comments.

Hey, if nothing else, maybe MM&S will give you something to do during lockdown. And you don’t even have to wear a mask. Have a great week, y’all.
